Wat Pha Luang Ta Bua - Tiger Temple directions
Now over ten years old, this beautiful Buddhist temple keeps and cares for numerous animals, most notably the tigers who walk around freely, being stroked by visitors.

The first tiger cub didn't arrive until 1999 and sadly it died after being taken to the temple by local villagers.

As adult tigers fell victim to poachers, several cubs were given to the temple and so far a further several cubs have been born. There are currently more than a dozen tigers who call the temple home!

Donations can be made at the temple and the Monks continue to collect funds in order to build a larger sanctuary which would allow the tigers to live in a more natural habitat.

Caution: Although the tigers appear tame, let's not forget these are still naturally wild animals. Sudden movements and too many camera flashes at one time can spook them. However in ten years there has only been one serious attack on a visitor, who survived!

Young children are not allowed near the animals and will not be allowed into the quarry where the tigers roam free!

The temple opens daily at 9.00am and closes at 4.30pm.
The Entry Fee for adults is 300 Th.Baht.
